God bless brotha!
Hi there friend and thanks for the answer.I'll do this and though I don't know much about cars( being such a zero the hero in the matter)I believe you could be right about everything you say.But my problem is bigger than what I have with the car in this situation:
Where to find a decent and honest auto shop that will do these things and not guessing what might be or might not be the problem and for the matter a GOOD mechanic and not a shop trying to rip me off??..would be nice to have YOU here and look at my car and I can tell you that I trust you more than any mechanic out there....
As you already read,I am new to CA state and the town I'm living in and especially to auto shop and friends knowing a damn good honest place where I could go and fix the car...but I'll look around and try to find somebody.All that I asked so far recommended me NOT to go to places like Meineke or Midas.So I'll check the ones that look more like a mom'n pop shops but I am much afraid of the costs....for once,at this particular moment I cannot afford to do anything because I don't have the money....I'll get some in a week or two but still I cannot afford more than 1,000 bucks...I hope I can find some mechanic to fix the problem in this range area and not going overboard.How much would you think it might cost me based on your experience and knowledge knowing now my car's problems?
As I told you above,I am more scared of a rip off shop or not a very good mechanic...there are many shops out there but how many are also good???
It's like in my business,we are many many artists but not all of us are in the top 10...I am glad to know that I am one of the good ones.
Thanks again and please write me back about your guess about the cost.
